Major Players

| March 30, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Opening night of American Night: The Ballad of Juan José, a brilliantly loopy journey through American history that was written by Culture Clash’s Richard Montoya, was held at La Jolla Playhouse. “The play asks us to consider the title character as a human being wanting to better his family and find a legal path to citizenship... and sing you a song along the way,” Montoya says. THE SCENE After the curtain fell, theatergoers, including San Diego Chargers coach Mike Sullivan and his wife Carole, tucked into the late-night lounge. Guests dined on tequila lime-infused ceviche shooters, barbecued pulled pork mini sliders, street tacos and cake pops, all provided by Hyatt Regency La Jolla. The traveling cast and creative team then joined guests on the dance floor until the late hours. THE HIGHLIGHTS Following the performance, Director Jo Bonney gave an inspiring chat together with Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley. Kudos to the theater’s Broadway-bound production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Send our regards to Broadway! Photography by Daniel Norwood
